Students who are rising 4th graders and above are encouraged to sign up to serve as an acolyte or usher during worship at Shady Grove UMC this summer at 9:30 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. in the sanctuary. Please arrive no later than 10 minutes before the service on your day to serve.
Sunday bulletins are printed on Wednesday afternoons and can include acolyte and scripture reader names. We do not typically print usher names in the bulletin. Please sign up to acolyte or read scripture by 11:00 am on Wednesday so that we may list names in the bulletin.
Acolytes will find a robe, candle lighter, and instructions in the small room to the right as you enter the foyer of the sanctuary. The acolyte should enter the sanctuary and walk slowly down the middle aisle (holding the candle lighter in front of them) while the first hymn is played.
Scripture readers will be emailed the scripture on Wednesday or Thursday afternoon. They should sit in the small pew on the piano side with the adult worship leader until the scripture is read. The readers can stay in the small pew for the remainder of the service or sit in the congregation with family.
Ushers stand in the foyer of the sanctuary to hand out bulletins as families enter for worship.
